Caten Farm work day!

Yesterday was a day off for snow, so Brian and I decided that we were going to go work as a family on the Caten Farm (we just recently purchased from all the siblings...His Dad had left it to the kids) Let me give you a little background...Eric and Camille and kids are in Cancun right now lying on the beach, and our kids were out working on the farm on their snow day...and boy did they let us know where they would rather be!! I have to give Bryce and Alyson credit...they both worked really hard, and Kara was so-so, but Bradley and Mitchell cried the whole time we were out there. We need to toughen these boys up! I wish I had taken a picture of them working while they were bawling, but I did get this picture of Mitchell crying when Brian finally let him wait in the car!

Rusty, I'm so pleased to find this blog of you and your family! I actually found this through Breezy, who says "hello!" Please contact me so that we can chat. I'd love to catch up and tell you about my kids. :)

Hi, This may sound so strange, but I will ask anyway. I love to quilt, and follow a lot of quilting blogs. One of the quilting blogs I follow is Darling I love you...(I think her name is Hale?), I was just reading it and I saw your name on the side bar, and clicked it because we had friends in Memphis, Eric & Camille Caten- I was wondering if they are your Eric & Camille? I am guessing they are the same, since there just cannot be that many Caten's from this area, with the first names of Eric & Camille.

If they happen to be the same, I was hoping you wouldn't mind telling them Kim & Steve Gawrys say hello. I know this is rude to ask a total stranger to do a favor, but I didn't know how to get it touch with them. We have looked in Salt Lake, because we think that was the last contact info we had. I haven't had any luck finding an address. We have fond memories of our short time in Memphis and Eric & Camille were a big reason.

They can also find us at we just started our family blog a few months ago (like you). You have done a great job, and have a beautiful family. Thank you for letting me impose on you. Just wondering what stake you are in? I grew up here, but since moving back a few years ago, everything has grown and changed. I am amazed at the growth of the church. It's a wonderful thing.

Thanks again for listening to me ramble. Good luck with the farm. It will be so worth all the work!

Take care, Kim
